took the first step toward banning assault weapons, a move that already has the nra firing back. senator dianne feinstein joins fellow democrats bruising the bill which would ban the purchase of semi automatic weapons with detaching magazine clips and also high capacity magazine. this president vowed to make gun control a priority in his second term of the newtown connecticut massacre. >> still, the bill does face a tough fight in congress and from the nra. and of of president obama's gun control proposals, analysts say this is the least likely to pass. shawn unanimous with the reasons for that. how confident are lawmakers behind the proposal? >> well, shep, senator feinstein and the other senate and house members who joined here repeatedly said they know this is going to be tough but they believe the newtown tragedy has changed the conversation and the pressure for capitol hill to get something done. here's a bit of what senator feinstein had to say. >> gun laws allow these mass killings to be carried out again and again and again in our country. weapons designed originally for
: the assault weapons ban expired almost a decade ago and tonight a spokesman for the nra says there is no need to renew it because gun bans do not work. >>> shannon bream live in d.c what would this new bill do exactly. >> it would ban the sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 157 specific guns, along with a broader group of other guns that would meet a new lower threshold for classifying a firearm as an assault weapon. there would be numerous bans on various high capacity magazines and beefed up background checks on the sale and transfer of all assault weapons. vice president joe biden said today assault weapons aren't necessary for personal protection. >> the shotgun will keep you a lot safer. a double barrel shotgun than the assault weapon in somebody's hands, you know it's hard tore use an assault weapon to hit something that is a shotgun. okay? >> by the way, the new classification would include a number of rifles, shotguns, and hand guns as well. >> shepard: i mentioned the nra is all over this? >> here is reaction from the group today saying this, senator feinstein has been tr
. is the nra changing their tune on gun control? >> reporter: no, they are not. david keen is still steamed that obama administration is putting emphasis on it. he doesn't think he is tag their concerns seriously. >> we wish instead of talking about guns specifically that they question that they would address what can we do to prevent these kinds of things in the future. the evidence shows that an assault weapons ban are not going to do that. what will do it is doing something about a broken mental health system that allows people that potentially violent to be the streets. >> reporter: furthermore, the nra is making it clear they don't think there are enough members of congress that favor an assault weapons ban to pass one. >> gregg: it's quite the face-off. is the nra's position cautioning the gun control advocates to back down at all? >> no, some are wondering out loud how much clout they have in 2013. >> the nra spent a lot of money on the elections last cycle. they didn't have a lot to show for it especially if you look at results. a lot of their candidates lost. we are looking at retu
. the n.r.a. invites joe biden to come face-to-face in a few hours. it comes as the v.p. threatened president obama made to bypass congress to use executive orders to enact new gun control laws. can he do that? peter doocy live in washington with the latest. >> brian, former president bill clinton was in vegas at the consumer electronics show, and part of his presentation was a plea for stricter gun control. it's very interesting. he said in some places with high crime rates there are going to need to be armed guards in schools, an idea the n.r.a. has endorsed. but he also said the broader issue of gun control must still be addressed. >> i grew up in [inaudible] why do anybody need a 30-clip for a gun? why does anybody need one of those things that carries 100 bullets? half of all the mass killings in the united states occur since the assault weapons ban expired. >> vice president biden yesterday said the president is talking to attorney general holder about potentially issuing an executive order to restrict weapons with the hope of preventing gunmen from committing mass murder in t
to worry about or the n.r.a. members or the tea party members, you have written. it's the crooks. if they want to do something bad, they're going to figure a way to get a gun. >> it's interesting because i never considered myself part of that crowd in any way. i'm not a firearms guy in any way. but when you look at all the killings being committed, whether the drive-by shootings in compton or watts or places like harlem or look at school shootings at places like sandy hook or columbine, none of these people are people that go to gun shows. you never hear about those people committing killings. maybe everyone has to calm down on this issue and take a moment to breathe. >>steve: before you go, i think to combat what happened, for instance, in sandy hook is the same thing the n.r.a. said and the president himself yesterday said we need more money for people with guns in schools? >> we've got a problem. we've got to address it. and we're going to have to pay for it a little bit. if that means emboldening law enforcement with more funds, we've got to do that. >>steve: jeffrey scott sh
anniversaranniversar? >> bret: the coverage was skewed. nra ad was referenceed 188 times in major newspapers and 162 times on tv shows. the crr baby video appeared on four shows, all of them on this network. the media research center tells fox, "the center for reproductive rights may consider abortion a knee-slapping jokes but americans aren't laughing. neither are the 55 million babies who have been murdered." the lack of media coverage of the despicable ad is inexcusable." here is the case where it's worth taking a second look at the numbers before you cite another report. al-jazeera noted an ox-pham study that noted the 100 richest billionaires of 2012 would end poverty four times over. they did so uncritically. without noting the numbers don't ad up. global issues.org says nearly half the world, 3 billion people, lives on less than $2.50 day. if you took oxfam at its word like al-jazeera did it would take a quarter of the $240 billion or $60 billion to end world poverty and that works out the $20 per person. the trouble is, that represents just eight days of living at the current $2.50 a day rat
opposite of that. what the n.r.a. and others said is the answer, security personnel in elementary schools and other events and you had that by the way, sporting events, you have armed security, you have it on college campuses. it's focusing on the wrong issue. this fbi said that the assault weapon ban of 1994 did nothing to lower crime and does anybody that's watching this broadcast now think that a signed poster that said do not carry your weapon in this area would prevent what happened in sandy hook. and what about the hipaa laws when a professional finds out, what happens. >> and one of the weapons used at sandy hook, bush master, mr-14. before the patent on the m-16 was expired. it was-- >> domestic. but it can fire 45 shots in a minute by squeezing the trigger, this is the problem. it's too easy to kill. >> sean: and i know a lot about guns. let me he throw it to dennis kucinich instead. i'm glad you have a fundamental understanding of the second amendment more so than anybody else on your side so far that i've heard. i'm willing to have an honest discussion, a marksman since i was 1
balance to the nra. there is an organization called americans nor responsible solutions that they are launching today and they make the argument that until now the gun lobby's political contributions have not been matched by others, that is about to change, no longer is what they write, is that how you see it? >> clearly that's their strategy, but again it all comes down to the sort of nuts and bolts of it. what is it that they are proposing? when you get into dash tkaerbg, if you want to create a nation hal database of people who are mentally unstable and shouldn't be getting guns, well do you think maybe that there might be some objection? forget the nra, do you think there might be some objection to epg keeping -- the government keeping a list of mentally unstable people? do you think maybe the aclu, or maybe some other group, psychiatric group might have some objection to the federal government doing that sort of thing stphao. bill: thing? criminals and the mentally ill can easily purchase guns by aeu sroeug avoid -gsing background checks. >> there are laws who preve
recall, was endorsed by the nra, harry reid voted against the assault ban in 2004 and got a b grade from the nra. so if i were giving the democrats any type of advice, they should not follow the president's liberal agenda on gun control. jon: -pt president doesn't have to run for office again. he's won re-election. he has four years to get done what he wants to do. we heard in the inaugural address that he seems to have moved -- well he seems to be pushing some more liberal positions than he espoused earlier. you have senators like tim johnson of south dakota. mark udall of colorado, maryland drew of lashes all of the democratic senators, all of them from states that do not favor increasing restrictions on john sales. >> then also you have members of congress that are up for re-election, and some of these are blue dog democrats. when people go to the polls if they do not vote their conscience and vote for their constituents, people at the polls are going to give them pain of defeat. when it comes to god in certain states and when it comes to guns people do not go against the grain of wha
are opposed by the n.r.a. so this is a big issue for mayor bloomberg. but i think we need to not only point out the hypocrisy but also the after-effect. the fact that we were trailed by nypd officers who claim they had security jurisdiction which is a phrase that doesn't exist, by the way, to question me and show i.d. as though i was some teenager on a friday night trying to buy liquor. >>steve: you're right about the hypocrisy. look at "the journal news," the newspaper in suburban new york which published those names of people who legally had guns, and then what did they have to do? they had to hire armed guards to protect them in the fallout. >> absolutely. that's the point. listen, americans know best how to protect their family. and you have, especially in urban cities, you have thugs, wanna-be thugs looking to vandalize homes. it's not like if congress issues a directive, if you're going to rob a home, do it by yourself. don't have someone with you, don't have an assistant. obviously criminals aren't going to follow that. therefore, why should mayor bloomberg and other politicians who
's what the nra should do. the nra should publish their names and their addresses in their monthly magazine so they can feel exactly what it is like, you know, to have that information put out there. >> do you think they would like it. >> they would hate it. >> of course they would. that's the best idea i have heard all day. harry haulk. nypd, thanks a lot. >> thanks a lot. the streets are packed with homeless people. how far and why are they there? more to the point are they dangerous? we ask dr. keith ablow coming up. did miley sirus already walk down the aisle? we have got the picture that has hollywood buzzing this morning. let's give thanks - for an idea. a grand idea called america. the idea that if you work hard, if you have a dream, if you work with your neighbors... you can do most anything. this led to other ideas like lerty and rock 'n' roll. to free markets, free enterprise, and free refills. it put a man on the moon and a phone in your pocket. our country's gone through a lot over the centuries and a half. but this idea isn't fragile. when times get tough, it rallies u
and he is trying to keep guns out of the hands of bad people. bill: the nra they are not buying any of this. putting out a statement in response to the proposed legislation, quote, saying the quote, the american people know gun bans do not work and we're confident congress will reject senator feinstein's wrong-headed approach, end quote. martha: here is exactly what is in this proposed legislation. it would ban the future sale, transfer, manufacture, importation of 157 different specific kind of semiautomatic guns and would restrict magazines that contain more than 10 rounds. it exclude some weapons from the bill, like assault weapons used by military, law enforcement and retired law enforcement. the legislation does protect hunting and sporting firearms, excluding 2,000 legitimate hunting and sporting rifles and shot guns by specific make and model. coming up we'll speak to the director of communication from the gun owners of america. what his group thinks about this proposed assault weapons ban and what it would mean across the board. bill: there are thousands heading to the natio
at a national level and actually fund candidates to counter balance the nra candidates. so if security and armed security is good for him i expect it for that single mother in new york city who is concerned about thugs and wannabe thugs who are going to rob her home. martha: she can legally have a gun and carry it. >> she can have a gun but it's restrictive as to the number of rounds in the magazine. right now nypd the standard issue firearm has 15 round in a magazine. now in new york you can only have seven. i'm sorry, burglars don't just rob homes by themselves. usually they have partners and they are not going to follow any directive, oh, please if you're going to rob this home, just do it by yourself, don't have two or three or four people with you. i think americans not the government should determine how many bullets they need to defend their person, property and family. martha: what do you think his answer would have been if you had got even through with him. why he deserves, and public officials deserve, and i think you're right, and most americans believe that you want these public offi
of disturbing that people are calling for my death because i'm a member of the n.r.a. they're worried about me. i go to class and i go to the range on occasion. >>steve: thank you for your service and joining us today. thank you, sir. >> thank you. stroeup he left a -- >>steve: he left a phone in a cab and discovered somebody was using it to somebody was using it to get and date.s to stay in motio. staying active can actually ease arthritis sympto. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benets with theisks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen, and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or st
